Join The Wild Center this summer to awaken your talents in celebration of art and nature in the Adirondacks. Monday mornings in July and August, come explore the natural world with experienced Adirondack artists. In each three-hour class you will grow your art skills and learn new art techniques in areas such as watercolor, pastels, and mixed media. Every week features a different focus and offers new skills, so sign up for one or more. Museum admission is not included. Space is limited to twelve people per class, so please register soon. Basic materials are included.

Working from photographs, learn how to see color and form, as well as how to mix, apply, and layer paints to translate the image into a finished work of art.

Georgeanne Gaffney creates paintings in multiple subject matters ranging from portraits to landscapes. Working from photographs that are a “snap shot of a moment in time”, her pieces translate intimate observations expressed in subtle shadows and dappled light. Layers of paints and glazes, rich in color and texture, result in dreamy, romantic and contemplative works that have an aged and atmospheric effect. Originally from Baltimore MD, Georgeanne graduated with a BS, in Painting and Drawing, from Towson University. She currently lives in Saranac Lake, NY, in the Northern Adirondacks and is inspired by the lush and dramatic environment.

Cost: $30 members/$40 non-members (pre-registration required)
